Dr Jims Ningshen Marchang

Lecturer (Course Leader of Cybersecurity)


I completed my PhD from the CSCAN Research Laboratory, Plymouth University, UK.

I completed his Bachelor of Technology and Master of Technology with distinctions in Computer Science and Engineering, India.

I am the Course Leader of Cybersecurity, Department of Computing. I am a member of IEEE, member of IEEE young professionals, member of IEEE IoT community and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy, UK.


I have teaching experience of 10 years in Networks, Network Socket Programming, Data Communication and Security.

As a researcher, I publish works in leading journals and conferences (IEEE, Elsevier, Springer, HTE etc) in the fields of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks, Autonomous Vehicles, IoT security, Blockchain and Information Security.

I received the best paper award in 15th International Conference on Advance Computing and Communication, IEEE conferences, 2007. I am a reviewer of ETRI Journal, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE TVT Journal, Elsevier, Journal of Information Security and Applications, International Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering (IJECE) and other leading IEEE conferences.

I am a technical member of various conferences including INC, CIIT, ICACNI etc. I also collaborate with various industries and other universities for research activities and actively take part in reviewing books and have written a book called Optimising Application Performance in Ad Hoc Networks: A Research Perspective, Lambert Academic publishing, Germany and contributed chapters for a book called Penetration Testing: A Manager’s Guide, BCS.
